    DarkBluePhoenix thanks for the info. I called the school today to see when I meet with someone from the nursing dept to eval my completed courses. I checked out the pre-req's on the website and noticed they require 2 chem classes, at CSULB the one chem class I took meets their chem requirement. I am kinda bummed, chem again! Plus CSUSB requires letters of rec and volunteer hours!

    Why are you bummed if the chem at csulb is equivalent to the chem at csusb?

    Well the chem that I took was general chem which is inorganic. Then I took the next in sequence which is a organic/biochem mix. I love it! Biochemistry would be my back up if nursing doesnt work out. I also did it at a CC though. But isn't the chem for CSULB the organic biochem one? But CSUSB wants general chem too eh? At CSULB, isn't the organic biochem class have a pre req like o chem?

    the chem at csulb covers general chem, organic chem, and biochem all in one semester. and according to assist.org it is equivalent to the csusb requirement. that's why i was wondering why victor3397 said "

    Oi! Must me nice! I had to do two semesters lol..

    Yeah I'm glad that it was all in one semester because I really don't like chem. It's my least favorite science and I really don't care for it. Haha

    I took chem 20 at El Camino, but I am not sure if it is equivalent to their two required chem courses. I called CSUSB to check about the chem I completed and the person could not give me any info. She rec I go to CSUSB to have them evaluted, so I guess i have to take the hour and half drive.

    Oi! Have fun. Go early though. Most people drive out of SB.Hopefully you get good news

    Gosh that really sucks. You didn't try emailing? That's how I asked and handled my math class situation. I didn't have to drive out at all to get my class waived.

    @Dark I dont have a back up career, but if I don't get into a program for Fall then I will be able to finish up a minor in Sociology and then reapply for nursing programs for the Spring semester. funny how I took sociology courses as 'fillers' while taking my Pre reqs and they actually count towards something I would only need 3-4 more classes to finish the minor so I would just do that in the fall
